As 2017, this document is deprecated, please, follow the method indicated here: https://elhombrequereventodeinformacion.wordpress.com/2017/02/24/1969/

 

For x64 systems aren’t available the official pacakge of Vmware View Client. The only solution is make the trick with an old Ubuntu version package and the multiarch support of Debian.

First, add the x86 multiarch support:
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

Install Gdebi for an easy dependency resolution:
apt-get install gdebi
Download libssl and vmware-view-client from Ubuntu site or from my github account:
wget 'http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/pool/partner/v/vmware-view-client/vmware-view-client_2.2.0-0ubuntu0.12.04_i386.deb'
wget 'http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/universe/o/openssl098/libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-7ubuntu3.2_i386.deb'
wget 'https://github.com/rfrail3/misc/blob/master/vmware/vmware-view-client_2.2.0-0ubuntu0.12.04_i386.deb?raw=true'
wget 'https://github.com/rfrail3/misc/blob/master/vmware/libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-7ubuntu3.1_i386.deb?raw=true'

Install the packages and accept dependencies:
gdebi libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-7ubuntu3.1_i386.deb
gdebi vmware-view-client_2.2.0-0ubuntu0.12.04_i386.deb

If all was ok, the new VMware View Client is available under your desktop menu.
